I get to work on New Years Eve, but that's okay, I get off at my normal time and we have nothing special planned. Well, that's not true. Lindi has her year end/month end and I get to go help her until 10:30 and then we are planning on heading over to Deanna's house before going home. This is the first year Lindi and I will be able to share a New Year's Kiss. I am excited!

I wish you all a healthy and HAPPY New Year!

HI All!

Christmas was wonderful. This was the first year that Sarah had a car all on her own, so SHE got to do all the driving around. Lindi and I went over to her parents, enjoyed the day with them (including sticky buns and homemade breakfast) then went to my parents in the afternoon. Lindi baked a ham and we brought it for everyone to eat and relax. My parents got em a beautiful sewing machine - I haven't made anything on a sewing machine in soooo long - I can't wait!

A grand time was had by all, and, as always, Sarah made out like a bandit.

And now onto the New Year. I hope it will be better than the last. My boobs are finally healed so i can start getting active again and getting rid of the extra poundage that I've gained this year by being dormant. My insurance should be coming through soon, so I will go to the dr and start getting back into the swing of things.

MUCH LOVE out to Lorene and her family - NO MORE INJURIES!

Hope you all had a lovely and Blessed Holiday!

And the best goes on... and on...

So, it’s officially official, I am an eBay employee! Sunday was my oritentation and all the fun paperwork that is required of us. Good news: Insurance for Lindi and Sarah. Great news: They offer pet insurance. Yes. Pet insurance. I am getting it and you can’t stop me.

Sunday evening was Lindi’s Family Party. Whoa. 6 brothers and sisters, their spouses, children and grandchildren. Lots of relatives to catch up with, but it was grand.

Monday was a feverish shopping trip with the wife and we *finally* finished it all. Well, I take that back, I needed to pick up some things for a HUGE food basket for my parents, but everything else we needed to get was got. Thank the Goddess.

Tuesday was my first official day at eBay – and I had to take it off as my floating holiday for 2005. Oh, the horror! I work Wednesday, Thursday and Friday before I have a 4 day weekend over Christmas. The hardship is killing me. I was able to finish up Lindi and Sarah’s Christmas and finish the gift bags for my friends here at work. It was a very productive “weekend” for me.

At this point, we are just making peanut brittle, fudge and peppermint cream bark for our families. Nice and relaxing. We popped out three batches before we went to bed last night, so I think it will be perfect timing. I didn’t want to make it too far in advance or it just doesn’t taste right.

BIGGEST HUGS AND LOVE to Lorene who is sick during the holidays – no fun, I will tell you that. A BIG THANKS to Toni for the wonderful cookies. It’s always the highlight of my Christmas! CONGRATULATIONS to Rob on his new job – they better treat you with the respect you deserve or I will open up a can of whoop ass.

Okay, I need to get back to work. Hope everyone’s season is shaping up nicely.

Oh, and did I mention...

That I was up at 4 this morning helping Lindi load her car, then burning CD’s before I came to work?

I need sleep. Seriously. 



Christmas is in FULL Swing...

Sometimes, I don’t even know where I am anymore…

Thursday Night, we attended the Manager’s Christmas Party at Squatters with Lindi’s bosses and fellow managers. Wonderful orange ginger glazed salmon and chocolate cake – mmmm. We had a wonderful time and Lindi got VIP Jazz Tickets as her gift! (I was hoping she would get the ipod…)

Saturday Night was the “Girls Party.” Basically, the “Girls” are a bunch of ladies that in someway connect with Lindi’s mother. There’s about 12-15 of them, and we hosted them for the Christmas get together this year at Lindi’s parents house. It was a soup theme, so we were treated to homemade chicken noodle soup, homemade french onion soup, cheese soup and chili, with cheese, crackers, green salad, dessert salads and cobblers. It was wonderful. We all bring little $10 gifts to do the “white elephant” game and they are always cute and creative.

Lindi got a singing snowman, I received three snowmen on a sled and Sarah, well, Sarah picked the gift she brought herself because she loved it so much – a bouncing snowman on springs.

Needless to say, but I will say it anyway, we were pretty exhausted by the time everyone left after dessert and presents, so we didn’t make it over to Chet and Shane’s house, and I was very dissapointed. I think Shane has such a huge heart and I am so happy to hear some homeless people will be sleeping under the quilts made by my friends’ loving hands.

Sunday, I woke up a little exhausted and a LOT in pain – my sinuses have been slowing drying out all season and being sick didn’t help – so off to Walgreens for medication and a new steamer for the bedroom, which helped immensely.

Monday was a crazy cooking day, making 4 batches of peanut brittle, 4 batches of fudge and little presents for all of Lindi’s 26 employees, as well as stuffing over 40 Christmas Cards (yes, yours will be coming soon….). Then, we headed off to the eBay Christmas Party at the Gateway, which was very lovely. Lots of great food and dancing! My team were hoofing it up on the dancefloor – we owned it baby! We had a lot of fun.

Yesterday was scrapbooking with John for his Christmas present for his special lady, then shopping with Corinne and even more wrapping and wrapping and wrapping… I nearly fell into a coma. I was starting to have a serious nervous breakdown until Lindi came home, made me smile and made everything much better. I am still quite overwhelmed, but I am okay.

And tonight is the Christmas Party for Lindi’s Crew at the Chinese Buffet.

Sooner or later, I will see the end of the proverbial tunnel. At least, I’d better!

Oh, and great news – I will be converting to an official eBay employee on the 19th of this month! Yay! Benefits for me and Lindi & Sarah! Thank Goodness.

So, back at work today and just flooded with people in chat with problems. Tis the Season, I am told.

So, if you don’t see or hear from me until after New Years, know that I love ya. I really do. Send care packages with water and food. *gasp!*

Coincedental Linkage

For TAN it was Fuck You Friday.

For me, it was my dad's birthday.

If you know me and or my father, you'll understand why that's kind of funny.
If you don't, just trust, son.


Dear America,
Why the fuck do you like Chili's so much? It's lame. Just barely better than Ruby Tuesday's.
How bout y'all give up this "living a little" bullshit and develop some taste, ass holes.

~Terri Simon


I am the girl

kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.

I am the prostitute

working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual woman.

I am the sister

who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights.

We are the parents

who buried our daughter long before her time.

I am the man

who died alone in the hospital because they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room.

I am the foster child

who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I wish they could adopt me.

I am one of the lucky ones, I guess.

I survived the attack that left me in a coma for three weeks, and in another year I will probably be able to walk again.

I am not one of the lucky ones.

I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear.

We are the couple

who had the realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to rent a one-bedroom for two men.

I am the person

who never knows which bathroom I should use if I want to avoid getting the management called on me.

I am the mother

who is not allowed to even visit the children I bore, nursed, and raised. The court says I am an unfit mother because I now live with another woman.

I am the domestic-violence survivor

who found the support system grow suddenly cold and distant when they found out my abusive partner is also a woman.

I am the domestic-violence survivor

who has no support system to turn to because I am male.

I am the father

who has never hugged his son because I grew up afraid to show affection to other men.

I am the home-economics teacher

who always wanted to teach gym until someone told me that only lesbians do that.

I am the woman

who died when the EMTs stopped treating me as soon as they realized I was transsexual. (yes, this actually happened)

I am the person

who feels guilty because I think I could be a much better person if I didn't have to always deal with society hating me.

I am the man

who stopped attending church, not because I don't believe, but because they closed their doors to my kind.

I am the person

who has to hide what this world needs most, love.

I am the person

ashamed to tell my own friends I’m a lesbian, because they constantly make fun of them.

I am the boy

tied to a fence, beaten to a bloody pulp and left to die because two straight men wanted to "teach me a lesson"


I am the 27 year old

New York transgendered woman who had her throat cut for no other reason than walking down the street, while strangers cheered on. (see below for link to more stories)
